IPL-SHR Laser hair removal in Christchurch

Reduce unwanted hair with our new painfree Medical grade IPL-SHR Machine!

SHR stands for Super Hair Removal. It is a new technology of permanent hair removal which is proving very successful.  The system combines laser technology and the benefits of the pulsating light method achieving practically painless results.  Even hairs which until now have been difficult or even impossible to be removed, can now be treated. “In Motion” represents a breakthrough in permanent hair removal with light technology.  The treatment is more pleasant than with traditional IPL and lasers and your skin is much better protected.

The sweeping technique of moving the applicator repeatedly over the treatment area ensures full coverage while the MAX cooling system cools the skin surface  – preventing superficial burns and allowing for virtually pain-free, yet highly effective hair removal.

SHR can also be used to treat skin conditions such as acne, pigmentation and rosacea. It can even reduce visible wrinkles, due to its collagen-boosting effects.

Although light skin with dark hair responds most favourably to the treatments, SHR-technology also enables the successful treatment of dark skin, removing achromous fine hairs.

What is IPL?

IPL (Intense pulsed light) is an effective non-invasive procedure used to permanently reduce unwanted hair and improve many skin conditions. IPL uses wavelengths of light that are absorbed into the melanin which is the dark pigment in your skin or hair. The light converts to heat which selectively damages the targeted cells while unaffective surrounding skin .

How many treatments are needed?

Until now hair had to be treated during the growing phase (20%-30%).

In the telogen phase stem cells are in a resting phase but can still successfully be treated with the SHR system.
Since growth cycles vary, approximately 6-8 treatments are usually necessary spaced out every 3-4 weeks.

What does it feel like?

Treatment with SHR is practically painless, compared to treatment with conventional IPL and laser devices. The sweeping technique of moving the applicator repeatedly over the treatment area gives full coverage while the MAX cooling system cools the skin surface, preventing superficial burns and allowing for virtually pain-free, yet highly effective hair removal.
